Our natural bedding help have the happiest babies.
White Lotus Home handmade crib mattresses are made differently from any other crib you can buy. We have been making this type of crib since 1981, making a natural product that is safer and healthier for your baby. We believe that a firm cotton crib mattress is the greatest sleeping surface any amount money can buy and your newborn deserves to start his or her life, sleeping without harsh chemicals. All White Lotus Home natural mattresses are handmade in the USA, some take one, while others take about five hours to make. The crib takes up 3 days to make, in order to get the firmness necessary to reduce the risk of SIDS and provide the firm surface a newborn needs.
How is it made? We place about 20 layers of US Grown Green Cotton or 100% USDA and GOTS Organic (depending on your choice) cotton batting on top of each other, which piles high at about 24 to 30 inches high, we then compress these layers into a case that is only 3.5 inches thick. This is the hardest part of creating this great crib for your little one. We then crush this crib for 72 hours before we hand tuft the crib and ship it out. It takes an artisan about 6 months to learn how to create a White Lotus Home crib.
While standard crib mattresses normally measure 27x52 inches or 27.5x52 inches, all White Lotus Home Organic Cotton Crib mattresses measure 28x54x3.5 inches. The reasons ours are handmade to be a little bigger is that we use only natural fibers that compress really well. In order to make sure children sleep on the safest mattress possible, making sure the crib mattress fits nice and snuggly is the best way to go. We have been handcrafting them this way since 1981. We do make custom sizes if you prefer a different size, please do let us know.
Toddler mattresses are recommended for children 12 months and older, as the surface is far softer than a crib mattress. Both styles generally measure the same length and width to fit snuggly within crib frames, convertible frames, and toddler beds. As your child grows, you also have the option to add a Mattress Topper for a layer of cushion and softness above the density of the crib mattress.
